Nomad Outpost ? Clifftop Retreat Inspiring Vantage Sacred Foundry Sunbaked Canyon Caves of Koilos Concealed Courtyard Godless Shrine Isolated Chapel Silent Clearing. For this deck I'd personally recommend the land cards that let you sac for 1 and draw a card to help refill your hand on that final turn with all the cheap mana instant and Sorcery spells you have, as well the Sunbaked Canyon while it does hurt, with lifelink mitigates the self harm to a surplus with some thing as low as Shock. but ultimately price and current unused cards matter. if oyu dont like the self harm part, then go with the Clifftop Retreat making it easy to play untapped with just having a mountain.

Hey, nice to see Luminarch Ascension with a pillowfort strategy :)

Consider expanding the pillowfort?

These cards slow down the game which you can benefit from since Boros is not as fast as other color combinations. Turn one Deafening with as many creatures as you have can give you an advantage. Many enchantments here are high CMC cards which means most likely you will not be casting more than one a turn. Boros can have a difficult time stopping opponents combos which these cards can help with because many combos involve casting cards.

Other cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • Scabland
  • Stone Quarry
  • Rampaging Ferocidon: not good with the Aureila + Helm combo or Ascension, etc.
  • Seraph of the Sword
  • Everdawn Champion
  • Serra's Blessing
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Damping Sphere
  • Leyline of Sanctity
  • Warmonger Hellkite

Good luck with your deck.

As mentioned already, using fetches in tandem with shocklands can give you the color availability to SB cards like Assassin's Trophy or Fragmentize or whatever.

Something I have seen which hasn't been mentioned is using the new Horizon lands to help shore up weaknesses. We have 6/10 of the color pairings, with entirely enemy color pairings besides Horizon Canopy. This is a pretty low-cost (deckbuilding as well as $$$) way to increase your color availability, and the lands turn into draws later in the game, even in match ups where you don't need the color access the land is still useful. Is it worth the 1 pain everytime? Hard to say without seeing a deck list. I will say though burn has had a glorious time slotting in 2x Sunbaked Canyon and 2x Fiery Islet to the MB, maybe consider Sunbaked Canyon or Nurturing Peatland for

Hey, it's great you're doing this for your daughter, but this is deck is not aggro, not close. It's midrange and honestly it's better that its midrange since aggro is less good in multiplayer Commander and aggro is not what you want with Angels.

Angels are about doing combat damage with flying to your opponents which Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is much better at than Anya, Merciless Angel and you have Gisela. As General Gisela doubles the flying combat damage that Angels do including herself. All Angels you control benefit from Gisela. Gisela can also help with the crack back since damage dealt to you is reduced. Anya is better as part of the 99 than as General.

For starters to upgrade your deck I would get away from aggro and focus more on how you can strengthen the midrange strategy with Angels. Examples of upgrades to improve midrange are cutting Embereth Shieldbreaker for Knight of the White Orchid, cutting Fumiko the Lowblood for Solemn Simulacrum, cutting Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas for Anger.

Cards you could cut:

  • Dwarven Mine
  • Idyllic Grange
  • Phyrexian Soulgorger
  • Embereth Shieldbreaker
  • Fumiko the Lowblood
  • Meteor Blast
  • Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
  • Jareth, Leonine Titan
  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
  • Fiendslayer Paladin
  • Tajic, Legion's Edge
  • Desolation Giant
  • Truefire Captain
  • Hunted Dragon
  • Pacifism
  • Razia's Purification
  • Crystal Slipper

Some other cards you could add:

Good luck with your deck.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hey uninvited,

Things have been good, deck is performing very well in tournament play considering Kaalia of the Vast being ranked in Tier 4 (high power). Won all three rounds again this weekend.

I've been making changes, some have worked out, some not so much. Still having the same challenge getting the Avg Win Turn down to 4 or below, however, I have seen the combo win-% go up dramatically, almost never kill with combat damage anymore ( Rakdos the Defiler and Kaalia of the Vast + Master of Cruelties are the exceptions).

Giving Dockside Extortionist a fair test, so far no feeling either way, hasn't been stellar, hasn't been a disappointment. I put Corpse Dance in to give him an Infinite Combo so he has the best opportunity to impress me, we'll see. He is not my style of card, anything that relies on my opponents doing something, I generally avoid, but still evaluating what he is, recently added.

I've actually removed every (except Hall of the Bandit Lord ) non-T1 land, so Meteor Crater won't meet my criteria. Also trying to cut down on the # of non- Worldgorger Dragon effective lands where I can too (like Sacred Foundry ), that way if I T1 Worldgorger Dragon can make infinite with "most" lands.

I still need to go down 1 land, probably Sunbaked Canyon for Mox Diamond whenever I can get my hands on one (saving up store credit at card kingdom selling stuff I don't need still.

Reflecting Pool , Dragonskull Summit (all check lands), and others have been eliminated, hate not having a on T1. I do like having Swamp and Plains , also note I've added Snow-Covered Swamp as well, to mitigate Blood Moon type effects, and utilize the Path to Exile and Assassin's Trophy (and some other ramp spells) benefits.

Forbidden Orchard is good, but doesn't work great with Master of Cruelties which I still play, mana sourcing is still quite good and consistent anyway, so no need to go the Forbidden Orchard or Tarnished Citadel routes anyway unless makes strategic sense.

Mox Opal just never going there, I ran another Mox Opal probability table this past weekend for a Kess, Dissident Mage friend, I just don't like it, I won't share the whole table, but here is some reasons why. Also, keep in mind, this probability is only the probability of drawing 3 artifacts (assuming you draw a Mox Opal whats the chance you have 2 others), if I were to do P(Drawing 3 artifacts) union P(drawing Mox Opal ) would be VERY low.

T1 with 18 artifacts is only 11%. By turn 5 (ignoring additional draw for now) is only 32%. At 24 artifacts T1 is 22% and T4 (want to win on or before this turn) 52%. 28 artifacts gets close to a good playability at T1 31% and T4 58%, but I feel if Kaalia of the Vast has 28 artifacts, just to engage a Mox Opal you should probably be playing a different commander, because their just aren't that many utility artifacts for Kaalia of the Vast .

Final Parting would allow for a Animate Dead tutor and a Worldgorger Dragon GY, but also need something to do with the infinite mana or have a damage outlet ( Dragon Tempest or Bogardan Hellkite ). So at CMC7 ( Animate Dead is CMC2), I'm better off running a Doomsday pile, which I've also decided is too high CMC.

Diabolic Revelation too much mana. Insidious Dreams is viable, others use it, but for me it's too high CMC again.

Scheming Symmetry is tempting ( Sensei's Divining Top also works), but still don't have enough draw to make it viable. With I think could be viable, but I've also seen it removed by players with draw attached to their commanders, it's just too risky, basically gives your opponent the ability to stop you and then win themselves, likely. If Scheming Symmetry was Instant it could work with Mishra's Bauble and would be a playable/fantastic tutor, but drawing your card on their turn isn't good because our Infinite combos are sorcery speed (you can build an instant speed, but it starts degrading synergy).

Thoughtseize has been fantastic and very useful, plus it's modular ability to get Worldgorger Dragon out of my hand, it's helped me avoid walking into chaos by seeing the control players hand and either knowing or removing a catastrophic play.

Right now pretty sure I need Simian Spirit Guide , the is blah, but he gives me the for Animate Dead on T1, and gives me an Animate Dead target to stop the Worldgorger Dragon loop and play out my hand, hopefully tutors or a Razaketh, the Foulblooded in a perfect scenario. So like Swamp + Entomb + Chrome Mox / Lotus Petal + Simian Spirit Guide + Animate Dead + something to do with mana (tutor probably, don't have Cut in my build) is another T1 win outlet. Tutor Razaketh, the Foulblooded , then sac Simian Spirit Guide to get Leonin Relic-Warder into Dance of the Dead and tutor up a Goblin Bombardment and a Necromancy with infinite tutor (bound by life but it's T1 and only need 2 tutors = 4 life), and then infinite damage. Hoping it will just give me another T1 path to win, which should inevitably lower my Avg win turn at some point.

Talisman of Conviction is on the potential cutting block, it's great net rock, but no .

I'm thinking of abandoning the combat damage line, so Gisela, Blade of Goldnight would go, but not quite there yet. Most don't like Avacyn, Angel of Hope , as removal is usually exile, hand or changes it's board state, rarely destroy, but gives an option from destroy effects, so I don't know yet. I took Balefire Dragon out, think I still need him, he probably could be a Fire Covenant but I like my control on my ADD, my interaction package is a little light I know that, only because I prefer to just try and win, opposed to trying to stop others from winning, just a philosophy, don't think it costs me wins.

Running out of ideas, doing research on Discord, going to look through a bunch more decks, already did comparisons to the Primers there, I'm never going Stax Ob Nixilis, Unshackled or maybe Aven Mindcensor / Chains of Mephistopheles maybe ill win the lotto one day / Stranglehold as far as I'll go if I do go that route.

Cheers.

I have a few questions about cards in the maindeck. Not because they're bad cards at all, but because there are other cards that might synergize better with you're life manipulation strategy. For example, why do you run Bounce lands, Buddy lands and Tri lands? You would be quite a bit better off running shocks and fetches, as well as the Horizon lands: Nurturing Peatland, Sunbaked Canyon, Silent Clearing, Horizon Canopy. Also, I wonder you're running big X-spells like Aurelia's Fury and Rakdos's Return? You're deck isn't really a big mana deck, and those spells probably won't have a dramatic impact across 3 opponents with just the lands you draw/ramp into fairly. Also, Mother of Runes is a good card, but does she synergize well with your strategy or is she just there to be a good protection spell? Either way, awesome list. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
